Raytheon was awarded a contract today to continue work on Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC).  See a press release here.  CEC is a natural development of the work the Navy has done with datalinks for the last 50 plus years.  By the Nineties the Navy was able to share the sensor picture from one ship with others over a tactical data link.  Even during the Gulf War this was not good enough for targeting.  CEC’s goal is to develope a netted sensor grid that will support providing a fire control solution good enough that one ship can guide a missile launched from another.  The Navy was installing CEC on selected ships by the end of the Twentieth Century. For more on CEC see this.
